Achieving New Year's goals
January 14, 2011
The New Year often brings with it resolutions aimed at getting back into shape. Although some may start out ambitiously, following through on the promise to lose weight or get toned is often easier said then done. However, according to the Louisiana-based paper The News Star, there are a number of ways to get a svelte physique this year.
Dieting and exercise are the most natural body-contouring option, but experts say it is important to get healthy smartly. For instance, losing a great deal of weight quickly can be unhealthy, as can over-exercising. Doctors advocate losing no more than 1 to 2 pounds per week.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, although liposuction can help improve one's figure, the results may vanish if the patient gains weight afterward, or does not maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Liposuction is consistently one of the most popular procedures in the United States. According to the ASAPS, more than 280,000 people requested the surgery in 2009.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body. ASAPS is comprised of over 2,600 Plastic Surgeons; active members are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (USA) or by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and have extensive training in the complete spectrum of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. International active members are certified by equivalent boards of their respective countries. All members worldwide adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and must meet stringent membership requirements.
